Back to School with Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids! Review and Giveaway

Preparing for back to school in my family means making leftovers for lunch for myself and Abbie, healthy snack choices, and slicing fruit so it's ready to go as I'm packing lunchboxes and running out the door.

We were recently able to review the new Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids Food Storage Containers.

My plastic container cabinet looks like "who did it and ran". There's got to be about 20 different containers, and only about 7 lids, but oddly enough, none of those 7 match any of the individual containers! I hate digging through that cupboard, and every time I do, I end up aggravated and discouraged.

The Easy Find Lids collection is the solution to my annoying problem. The lids snap onto the bottom of the containers, which puts and end to searching through the depths of the cupboard a thing of the past! The Rubbermaid Lock-Its have four locking tabs to ensure a secure seal. (In my opinion, perfect for shoving in a backpack, lunch box, or baby bag!!) The Premier Collection is odor and stain resistant to stay clear for life. The shatterproof thicker plastic is microwave, dishwasher and freezer safe.

My big test was for the green produce saver containers. We go through fruit very quickly in our house, because we can never keep it long enough. The Fresh Vent allows produce to breathe, and the lower Crisp Tray separates produce from the moisture on the bottom of the container. The lids and trays snap together and to the base for easy storage, which eliminates wasted time hunting for missing lids or pieces. It did increase the longevity of our produce, so over all I was very happy.

I get to put it to another test with apples on Monday.

I so need these, I have pictures of the 2 year old destroying our cabinets if you need proof.

My favorite part is that they are all stackable, the lids on the bottom and the containers on the top - so it keeps things tiddy :)But the fact that the containers nest together and different lids fit different containers on the bottom makes it even BETTER :)

The #1 reason I wish I could win this Rubbermaid set is because of the square shape which optimizes space utilization and boy could I use that.
#2 is the graduated sizes that nest together for (again) optimal space storage.
And I could go on.....but won't.

I like that one lid fits multiple bases. I think my plastic container cabinet looks a lot like yours. I am currently using a soft lunch box to hold the lids, but only about a handful of those actually fit the containers we have!
